(NEWS) Gaza's Internal 'Tinder Box' May Explode Soon

"A showdown in Gaza between Syrian and Iranian-backed factions is likely to occur any day, Debkafile reports, quoting a military source. The source said that the possible clash would be caused by the strained relations between the ruling Hamas party, led by Khaled Mashaal in Damascus, and the Islamic Jihad, Iran's proxy in Gaza. Saudi Arabia's recent move to pull Syria away from supporting the Hizbullah and Iran, said Debkafile, is one of the latest developments that may spark an internal Gaza war.

Hamas and Islamic Jihad are both reportedly preparing for a fight, with both sides ordering a Gaza-wide call-up of their forces."
